In these times of bleak press briefings and FAKE NEWS-witch hunting, White House reporters could use an American hero to look up to.
Thankfully, Tom Hanks entered right on cue with a very uplifting gift for the White House Press Corps.!
On Thursday, reporters at the Capitol were pleased to find a brand-new espresso machine with an energizing note from the Oscar winner that read:
“To the White House Press Corps. Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth part.”
We’ll drink to that!!
White House reporters were overjoyed with their new caffeine machine, sharing pictures of the stainless steel Pasquini coffee maker on Twitter:

Even CNN is allowed to have some! Nice!
And no, this isn’t the first time the American treasure treated the Press Corps to an upgraded espresso machine:
Thanks @tomhanks-very kind of you to send a new espresso machine to the White House press corps. We appreciated the other ones-nice upgrade! pic.twitter.com/2Ne2c2Rd96

We’re sure this will give many discouraged reporters the second wind they needed!
It’s good to know someone’s looking out for the press as they continue to fight to report the TRUTH.
